A Few Quick Halloween Treats

I am in the midst of Halloween season which is the beginning of my favorite time of the year... so of course, I am hosting a ton of Halloween type things.  Well at our last party and at our party this coming weekend...these are a few of the things I served!

Bread Bones
1-2 cans of refrigerated bread sticks or croissants
coarse salt
cooking spray

These suckers are so easy it is ridiculous... so you just take your bread and shape it into a bone like shape.  spray it lightly with cooking spray, sprinkle salt on them and bake them according the package.
This recipe as well as this wonderful picture came from:

Mummy Dogs
1 package of hot dogs
2 packages of croissants or bread sticks

Once again, ridiculously easy.  Just pull the bread out into thin chord... then starting at the base of each hot dog wrap it up like a mummy.  Leave a space for the face.  Bake according to directions on can of dough...Let those mummies cool off then give them some little mustard eyes!

This awesome picture as well as the recipe comes from:

Then of course you can do an easy dessert... cupcakes!  I just used a box of cupcakes and prepacked icing for this... but I wanna share a pic of what they look like when they are done... Or what they are supposed to look like, mine didn't look quite so professional.  They tasted really good though!  Well foo, I can't find the picture I was looking for.  So here is what you do to ice them. 

Make circles starting from the inside going out to the outermost portion of the cupcake in a contrasting color to the base icing.  Take a toothpick and drag from the center of the cupcake to the outer edges.  Repeat several times... Google spiderweb cupcakes to see what I am talking about.  I didn't want to steal anyone's blog photography! 

Happy haunting!
